Ever since I washed up those buttons, I've been thinking about what to do with them. I decided I wanted to make some pendants.
Much to my surprise, this is proving to be a little harder than I thought. I think I'm having a hard time parting with these old beauties, there seems to be such a finality with using a vintage button - or maybe I'm having a tough time because of the colors. Most of these old buttons are very earthy in tone, which makes them not so interesting when put together. Maybe I should have attempted this project in the fall when I'm influenced by more of an earthy color pallet. Regardless, I'm moving on, crossing another thing off my "to-do" list. Let's face it, playing with buttons, no matter how challenging, is addictive. Vintage button pendants to come!
